by Rebel Girls
I have been a big fan of the Rebel Girls books for a while. Along with the Little People, Big Dreams series they offer kids a look at what others have done. Hopefully this both helps to appreciate those who have come before and to motivate kids to believe in themselves and their aspirations.
This collection includes stories of 100 young changemakers following a foreword by Bindi Irwin and an introduction. How wonderful that there are 100 people who are inspiring. Each entry includes biographical information and illustrations. Here are everyone from a swimmer to a musician to a singer/songwriter, to a scientist and inventor, a soccer player, a sailor, a painter, a blacksmith and more. So, yes, there is a strong message that girls can aspire and do!
This book belongs on both family and school bookshelves. Its wide scope is just terrific.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Rebel Girls for this title. All opinions are my own.
